TJ's Hamburger Helper

We attempted to make cabbage rolls (yummy, and so appealing to the Polish part of me!) but then realized that it had eggs in the filling. The recipe to follow was so spur of the moment, but came out delicious. I would definitely make this for myself!

1/2 small onion, chopped
1 medium garlic clove, chopped
Olive oil
1/2 lb beef/pork mixture (any meat mixture would work here)
1/2 tsp Italian seasoning (to taste)
1/2 tsp dried thyme
1/2 cup tomato sauce
3/4 cup cooked rice (we used a "safe" white rice for this)
1/2 bag of frozen peas
salt/pepper to taste

In a skillet, drizzle a small amount of olive oil and sauté onion and garlic until translucent. Add beef/pork and brown. Drain. Add seasonings, mixing thoroughly. Add tomato sauce and cooked rice, stirring to coat. Add peas and cook until defrosted. Sprinkle salt/pepper to taste.

This was a recipe that TJ kept screaming "a more!" to. :)
